Presdients Day

This is Presidents Day … when many Americans take a day off work to think about all the men who have led the executive branch of our government. Of course, most Americans will give the presidents very little thought today … beyond celebrating … or complaining about the one we have now.
I read a lot of history and a lot about our presidents, and I can assure that no president was ever popular with everybody. You really can’t please all of the people all of the time. Lincoln’s top general – McClellan – referred to Honest Abe as a “gorilla” on many occasions.
Rating our favorite presidents is kind of silly, since it is so subjective. I always go with Washington, Lincoln, both Roosevelts, Truman, Eisenhower, and Reagan. I don’t think they were necessarily the “best”, but I found each man to be an interesting leader during interesting times.
We’ve had some good ones and some bad ones, but none has been able to destroy the republic.

Our thought for today is from Peter Drucker:
 
“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”
